From the creator of Miki, comes a brand new and captivating character - Pushka, a little clown. Pushka is fast asleep in his bed on the circus train. Little does he know that he is about to topple out... amongst the enchanted trees. Scared, Pushka runs away through the night until he sees the most beautiful dancing girl. She says not a word, but she beckons him to her, luring Pushka into the arms of a HUNGRY GIANT! Will Pushka ever make it back to the circus
With all the elements of a fairy tale - an enchanted wood, a trapped heroine, a terrifying giant, a sprinkling of magic, kindness from animals and a love story.
